is what a bribe looks like.  I am doing our taxes this week, and when I finish them, I get to play with this.  It was a new lace scarf or chocolate, and at least the scarf will lead to a decrease in my stash, and is probably much healthier.

I thought I wasn't going to need it, because I managed to get our federal taxes done with only lace icicles as a bribe,
but Tuesday night I slept badly and my back ended up in enough pain that yesterday was mostly drugged, so my maturity level has had a corresponding set-back.  I keep telling myself that if I just get the taxes done then I have all weekend to play, and I think it will get me back to my desk, but a little alpaca lace yarn doesn't hurt anything.......................
